Registration notes: Northfield is built on Freedom Lands gifted by Robert the Bruce to the Burgh of Aberdeen around 1313 and this Academy design is based on the complex 1782 Aberdeen tartan. The dark blue squares number 56 threads for the year 1956 when the Academy was opened; the maroon is from the original 1956 school badge; the predominantly dark blue and light blue colours represent the colours of the school tie in 2016; the four light blue lines around the white represent the four capacities of Scottish education's Curriculum for Excellence in the 21st century. Finally, the grey remembers the 19th century Cairncry Granite Quarry on part of which, Northfield Academy was built.
